Psalms, Book 4

More of the same—yet not the same—at the same time!

Do we ever truly learn enough about how to pray? The disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray. E.M. Bounds, in his classic book on prayer, asserted that, “No man [or woman] can do a great and enduring work for God who is not a man of prayer, and no man can be a man of prayer who does not give much time to praying.” But how do we do it? What is there to pray about?

Moses and David contribute these Psalms as our tutor in charging and recharging our batteries to make us more of a praying people. Many real-life themes emerge in these psalms, beginning with Moses’ model for praying for people navigating the “wilderness” experiences in this life in Psalm 90.

Creation, redemption and consummation are all themes in Book 4. They are all fuel for prayer and lead to hope and thanksgiving—even making “a joyful noise to the LORD” (Psalm 100:1).

“Father, teach us to pray. Use this prayer journal of your saints to make us more and more to be men and women of prayer.”
